Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is a form of massage therapy created in India thousands of years ago. It is a deep style massage derived from the Ayurvedic tradition that focuses on the head, shoulders, arms, face and neck.
Starting at the upper back, we begins by applying pressure to points that dissolve knots and relax the muscles. We then move to the shoulders and upper arms to release other common areas of tension, and to the neck and head to release headache-causing blockages and to encourage better circulation of the cerebral fluid.
The massage then progresses to the scalp, relaxing the entire head, encouraging circulation and stimulating hair growth. Lastly, we perform a gentle face massage that may relieve symptoms of sinusitis & headaches, and encourages good circulation & a glowing complexion.
Benefits of Indian head massage include:
- Relieving built up tension that can often result in headaches, migraines, neck & back pain
